The Handmade Music School is excited to announce the Second Annual Floyd Youth Get Together Camp, a traditional music and dance camp for kids ages 8-15. This amazing five day camp will take place from 9am – 2pm on Monday, July 3 through Friday, July 7, 2023 at the beautiful EcoVillage in Floyd County, Virginia!
The Floyd Youth Get Together Camp will be a fun-filled week immersed in the traditional music and dance of Southwest Virginia. Our camp will offer exciting and interactive classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar, singing, and dance. Morning and afternoon sessions will feature instruction, performance, presentations and enrichment activities with visiting musicians. Kids will jam together, be involved in square-dancing and square dance calling, perform and learn about the long history of music and dance in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The camp will take place at the Floyd Events Center, which is part of the Floyd EcoVillage. The facility features a beautiful and secluded setting on 75 private acres just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the charming town center of Floyd.
Our mission is to ensure that kids coming to our Youth Get Together camp experience the community and joy found in our traditional music and dance.
Registration opens March 10, 2023.
